Yeah, I just Googled it and the rear appears the same. :tu:

Been scratching my head thinking, and getting other suggestions such as Alfa Romeo, Triumph, Fiat... but nothing matched.

THANKS!

Jensen Healeys are sick. They're like an MGB for rich people who don't have enough problems keeping their MGs maintained and alive. I want one so bad it's not even funny. :D

Since this one was a LHD, I'm guessing they built both LHD and RHD for various markets?

There was a seriously sexy shooting brake variant as I recall. Never seen one "in the metal" but definitely a cool car. They certainly did a better job of integrating the federally-mandated rubber bumpers than the MGs did.

Yeah, I can believe and understand the attrition rate. It's always just a bit saddening to see such high unaccountable or MIA numbers.

At least you can run checks on cars in the UK and get an idea of what's still out there. Nothing like that here in the USA, so we have absolutely no idea what's left (for anything).

Yeah, lotus 2.0 lifted from the early Esprit/Eclat/Elite, they made a "GT" shooting brake version that notoriously ruined the handling... I'd take one :D I may have never seen one in running condition, but I have seen them amassed in front yards.
